What is Bitonic?
Bitonic was founded by three bitcoin enthusiasts who experienced first-hand how cumbersome the process was to acquire bitcoins in The Netherlands before Bitonic was founded. Two banks blocked payments to an international bank account and we had to trust several other parties to acquire bitcoins. Since 2012, we offer a fast and secure way by which we make bitcoins available to everyone in The Netherlands. Bitonic has become the Bitcoin expert in the Netherlands!
Bitonic.nl is a fully automated system: once the payment is finalized the bitcoins are automatically transferred, and when our stock runs low we automatically buy new bitcoins on the larger markets. For a very modest extra charge, compared to those big markets, you have the convenience of paying with iDEAL, Bancontact or MyBank and you save yourself the time and hassle from signing up at an exchange.
A summary of the advantages:
Fast: your bitcoins will be transferred automatically and (nearly) immediately after the payment has been completed. You’ll only need to wait for the bitcoin network to approve the transaction before you can spend your bitcoins (generally this takes around 15 minutes) *
Simple: no need to scan documents or transfer money to foreign bank accounts, of which it remains to be seen whether/when it arrives.
Reliable: The payment methods iDEAL and Bancontact offer, like Bitcoin, irreversible transactions. We sell from out own stock: you will always receive the exact amount of bitcoins you paid for.
Transparent: our prices are 100% all-inclusive, there are no hidden and/or extra fees.
